Rallying from several goals down in the second half to pick up a victory is becoming commonplace for the No. 11 Virginia men’s lacrosse team.
The Cavaliers did it again on Saturday, overcoming a five-goal deficit to defeat No. 7 Notre Dame 13-11 at Klöckner Stadium. UVa (5-2, 2-0 ACC) won its fourth game in a row is off to a 2-0 start in conference play for the first time since 2012. UVa, which rallied from a four-goal deficit to defeat Brown in overtime in its previous game, used an 8-1 run over the final 23:59 of the game to erase a 10-5 deficit and knock off the Fighting Irish.
Here are highlights from UVA vs. Notre Dame.
It’s not like last spring’s loss to Cornell in the Ivy League men’s lacrosse championship had any lingering effects on Yale’s collective psyche. The Bulldogs recovered to win four straight NCAA tournament games and a national championship.
Still, that six goal-loss to the Big Red, Yale’s worst defeat since 2014, provided some extra motivation leading into Saturday’s Ivy League opener with Cornell.
“Last year set the tone for this year,” said Yale sophomore midfielder Brian Tevlin. “They’re so talented that it’s hard not to be mentally dialed in and prepared. But losing in the Ivy final wasn’t easy. It could have ended our season for all we knew. We came in this time with the mentality that they were coming for our heads, and we had to stop them.”
Second-ranked Duke outscored Towson 4-2 and forced eight turnovers in the fourth quarter to come away with a crucial 12-10 victory over the No. 2 Tigers in Saturday afternoon men’s lacrosse action. The Blue Devils are 3-0 in top-five matchups this season. Duke (8-1) garnered its seventh straight win of the year and third over a top-five team heading into ACC play next weekend. Towson falls to 5-2 on the year with losses to the Blue Devils and Cornell. “We knew this was going to be a 60-minute battle,” said head coach John Danowski. “Towson is well coached and already has some great wins. Going in we knew we would have to buckle up the chin strap for 60 minutes.”
The Syracuse lacrosse offense took awhile to find some consistency against Rutgers on Saturday, When the Orange finally got on a roll, it put on an impressive closing kick. Syracuse overcame several deficits and flashed a whirlwind finish to overpower the Scarlet Knights 18-14 in the Carrier Dome. The Orange, which trailed by four goals twice and three goals once, produced a vicious fourth-quarter in which it outscored its foe 8-3, won 11-of-12 faceoffs, put up 18 shots and grabbed 15 ground balls. No. 13 SU (4-2) left No. 16 Rutgers (3-3) in the dust by posting the final four goals.
